In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit Hartsdale Pet Cemetery. Just north of New York City, the cemetery was founded in 1896 and is the oldest operating pet cemetery in the United States. It’s here that dearly departed four-legged friends—and sometimes, even their owners—come to rest. Be sure to grab your tissues.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
